Abstract/Description

This paper offers a comparative study of some of the colonial fictions of Stevenson and Conrad. It takes a postcolonial position, arguing that both Stevenson and Conrad were moving in the direction of literary modernism as they wrote fictions that attempted to challenge the traditional British approach to the experience of Europeans in the Far East.
